My Cup of Tea

I bought the WMS Afternoon Tea set and matching die earlier this year with the idea of making something special for my dear friend Maggie who celebrated her 50th birthday in April - she is somewhat partial to a cup of tea.  I also probably had her in mind when I picked up this Garden Tea Party Stack from DCWV last year.  

This card is also for her but unfortunately this time to give her comfort as she is now facing 3 months of chemo.  Her chances are excellent as it was diagnosed early, but the next few months will be tough for her.  

I've used Seize the Sketch #27 as inspiration for the layout.  They're winding up today so I had better get a wriggle on or I will miss the link up on their last sketch.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. What a great sentiment and your images are adorable! Thanks for joining us for the final challenge at Seize the Sketch!

  2. What a beautiful card! I know your friend will be thrilled to have this!

  3. I'm sure your beautiful card will bring Maggie comfort, Kate, and will be something she can keep by her side during her journey. I pray that the chemo is not too tough on her and that her recovery goes smoothly. I have that saying framed on my office wall, a gift from my DIL. I just love it. Hugs, Darnell

  4. Love that card Kate, the colors are so pretty and serene. The kettle looks great all shiny. I bet your friend will love it, nothing cheers tea lovers up more than tea stuff :) Hope Maggie is ok x


I'd love to hear from you !!!
